The breakfasts and dinners were 1st class. Could not fault. The chef certainly deserves his two rossettes. We found all the guests were very friendly.

Stayed here on many occasions, always fab. Ordered afternoon tea for 2 and my husband asked did they sell champagne and could he order 2 glasses of champagne. Sandwiches cut into triangles instead of fingers, cakes average, scones awful as overcooked and stale, hardly any cream and defiantly not enough to share for 2 Tasted the champagne and realised that this was NOT champagne. Caught the attention of a lady and asked her if we had been served champagne or not ?? 10 mins later the blasé guy who had originally served us, returned to say they do not sell champagne, only sparkling wine!!!!!!! Told him he should have told us that when we ordered it, and not try to pass it off as champagne, he didn't apologise but it was knocked off our bill at the end. Out of order trying to pull the wool over customers eyes! Would not visit here again as their dishonesty has completely put us off

Just returned from a mid week break with My mum and Auntie.Great Hotel and Great staff,very friendly.Food was fantastic.Drinks I will say are very overpriced.We came away with a hefty bill for Wine at the table and a few extra drinks came to £90. The only reason we wont be returning is the fact My poor Mum and Auntie struggled terribly climbing 4 flights of stairs to get to our room ( with a lake View). If your not mobile then you would struggle. No lift and no other easy way of getting to your room on a higher floor. One thing to be aware of when checking out,they add on £2.00 donation for the up keep of the conservation,which we had not been told about.

The only thing I could fault about the hotel was the temperature. Our room was so hot all the time, despite turning off the radiator, and eventually when we found it, the heated towel rail! Really wanted to throw the windows open wide, but there were "Health and Safety" stops on them so that we could only open them a fraction. As it isn't a hotel which is likely to have small children staying, I do think we should be trusted not to jump, or fall out! Other than that, a wonderful break in a hotel which is both elegant and cosy. Food lovely and staff/service excellent. We really felt that we were somewhere special and found it very relaxing.

Lovely room (apart from cracked tiles and shoddy sealant in the bathroom and unimaginative freebies, but I am uber fussy) but with a view over the carpark. We asked to be moved as one of the reasons for coming to this area was the view and we were shown another room which had a nice view, but the room was not up to my exacting standards, so we returned to the first one and compromised on the view, only to discover that the family from hell were in the next room - screaming kids and incessant knocking on the doors. What happened to parental control and consideration of others? Disappointed by the food which didn't quite match it's write up on the menu (dinner menu). The seasoning let it down, it lacked flair and the portions were tiny. Breakfast was OK, especially liked the toasted granola but the cooked breakfast was a little spartan. Service is a big issue at this hotel. Borderline surly, scruffy appearance and a lack of knowledge about the food they are serving. Items missing from the table, or serving areas. Slow at clearing away glasses in the lounge area and empty tables in the dining room which made the place look more like a service station cafe than a star rated hotel. It's this sort of attention to detail that will hold this hotel back from greatness, but perhaps they have found their niche in a competitive market?
